Letter in Today's Globe

On Monday, the Boston Globe published an editorial, Can Ken Feinberg be cloned?, in which they praised Feinberg's work overseeing various compensation funds. Although I agreed with their assessment of Mr. Feinberg, I took issue with their suggestion that he be cloned, as cloning is not what many people think it is.

To my surprise, they ran my letter in today's Globe under the title Cloning not like photocopying.

Score one for the promotion of scientific literacy.
